Return of Vietnam POW’s 42 Years Later

Lt. Col. Barry B BridgerThis week we talk with Lt. Col Barry Bridger, a Vietnam POW who spent 6 years in the infamous Hanoi Hilton. Capt Bridger began flying combat missions during his first regular tour of duty in Southeast Asia with the 497th Tactical Fighter Squadron at Ubon Royal Thai AFB, Thailand, in late 1966. He was forced to eject over North Vietnam on January 23, 1967, and was taken as a Prisoner of War. After spending 2,232 days in captivity, he was released during Operation Homecoming on March 4, 1973, and was hospitalized for his injuries at Andrews AFB, Maryland.
